After last month's phenomenal launch of MUSIC AND WINE Strictly Jazz, we return to the Top of the Alpha this Saturday, December 22nd to host the second instalment of this monthly event. This time, it happens to fall on the night of the Christmas Party of proprietor Louie Ysmael. In other words, this promises to be a heck of a night! So dress festively, and don't leave that Santa hat at home!
Here's the December music mix prepared for the occasion.

Elian and Ines proudly announce their latest passion project: MUSIC AND WINE presents Strictly Jazz, a monthly event held at the swanky new jazz bar Top of the Alpha by Louie Y. The launch party is scheduled for Friday November 23rd at 9pm.
Elian Habayeb and Ines Cabarrus-Habayeb aren't new to the scene. They've been doing this for quite a while now.
Just 10 years ago, MUSIC AND WINE was a radio show, a weekly party, and a newspaper column that the couple produced and authored. And, although the Saturday event at the Mandarin Oriental's "Martinis" bar and the column in the Manila Standard Today ceased when the couple opened their first Chihuahua Mexican Grill, the syndicated radio program airing on the no longer existent 106.7 DreamFM "Manila's Jazz Authority" and on sister stations nationwide continued garnering an ever-growing listener base. As a podcast, MUSIC AND WINE Radio reaches the four corners of the Earth with hundreds of thousands of downloads and subscribers, just recently earning the #18 spot on Podomatic's global house music ranking.
Today, DJ Elian remains the "music" part of the relationship, focusing on jazz more than ever before in his career. He obsessively follows the evolution of this American art form as it takes root in the world's most progressive societies, from New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and New Orleans, to Montreal, Toyko, Copenhagen, and Montreux. "There is a direct correlation between how dynamic a society is and how high the concentration of jazz bars," says Elian. "Jazz is the most advanced form of music out there today. Any musician that plays it must be a true master of his instrument." Elian plans to play DJ sets of "nothing but jazz" all night long, with carefully selected tracks dropped at the most appropriate points of the evening.
His wife Ines holds a Level 3 Wine & Spirit Education Trust certificate and was a founding faculty member of top hospitality school Enderun, where she taught "beverage management" for five years. An avid jazz fan herself, she plans to work the room talking wine and helping guests find the perfect libation to pair with the evening's tunes.
And just as jazz is abstract music, expect abstract photography by DPGK.
Don't miss this if you're a fan of music, wine or both. And come congratulate Louie Ysmael on his gorgeous new jazz bar at the penthouse of the Alpha building!

This is an audition mix I put together 10 years ago for a monthly party Kevin Ruiz, Wendell Garcia and I were pitching to a club called Ascend in the Fort. The night never materialized, and the club went belly up, but the mix is gold. Happy to share it with you all here on our deep house music podcast

The 10-year Anniversary of this rare set of CD mixes continues. The work--featuring jazz, rhythm and blues, hip-hop, and world music--was originally commissioned by Abba Nappa for her bar Brava in 2007. Although the bar is no longer around, Abba has gone on to establish the restaurant powerhouse Moment Group. We published the never-before-released "Dinner CD1" back in September right here on this podcast, in case you missed it. Here now is "Dinner CD2".

And we get to celebrate our ONE-HUNDREDTH EPISODE by featuring Jojo, who we can confidently say, after doing this podcast for 10 years, is our favorite DJ hands down. This set recorded live in Athens, Greece, and takes us on a nice journey through the full spectrum of the Global Soul sound. Don't miss this Saturday's Not Your Typical party that starts at 2pm and ends at 12 midnight and features organizer Kristian Hernandez, Shortkut (San Francisco), Miro, Vinroc, That Girl, Marvelous, Deejay Paeste, Henry Lami, Archie Oclos, Padyak Ph, and of course the one and only Jojo Flores. This is deep house music at its very best! https://www.facebook.com/events/2025446001044991/ http://jojoflores.com/ Deep & Jazzy .ELIAN. house of love // July 2003 - Episode 99
